Great food, and service. Went because of TripAdvisor and not let down. Lamb stew was fantastic.

Lovely venue in town.

We were so glad to get into Oppie Dorp on short notice on our recent trip to South Africa. Learn from this and make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

The food here was exceptional, whcih is saying something because the quality of food in the Cape really surprised me as an overseas visitor. I visited about 10 restaurants based on TA reviews and personal taste and have to say this was the best one.

I have to agree with previous reveiwers that it maintains a sophitiscated atmosphere in a down to earth style, which is not easy to find in my exeperience.

Make sure you have an open mind at the menu changes based on the fresh produce available that week so be prepared to change your choice after hearing from the helpful waiting staff.

If we had more than 1 night in Stellenbosch we would have gone more than once.

Well done guys and keep up the attention to detail and customer service. We hope to be back in Cape Town in the future and will definately look you up

So glad we found this boutique restaurant in Stellenbosch! Service was excellent: the waiters were polite, professional, and attentive. The atmosphere was sophisticated, but not pretentious. The setting was lovely and intimate. The food, however, was the best part. The menu changes weekly, and there are numerous daily specials. Ingredients were fresh and the food was simply superb. Will definitely be going back.

previously known as "Cognito", this venue has had a change of heart, leadership and menu. Inspiring and good wholesome food.

Thanks to Trip Advisor we have found our perfect restaurant in Dorp Street. The welcome of the staff, the careful explanation of the menu, the meticulous presentation and quality of the food are second to none. Each dish is carefully served by delightful staff. We love the fact, also, that there is no 'corkage fee', which means we can come here more often. We are 'swallows' but on our return in September this will be our first 'date'. Truly delightful in every way.
